The 100th anniversary symbol of the crown, which will take place next year, will be the second largest gold coin in the world. The governor of the Czech National Bank, Jiří Rusnok, reported. The Czech Republic will celebrate a hundred years of separation of the Austro-Hungarian monetary system and the rise of the Czechoslovakian crown. The CNB is preparing to commemorate this anniversary with several accompaniment and bleaching events for special capitals.
The symbol of these celebrations must be converted into a currency of a nominal value of one hundred million crowns. This pure gold coin with a diameter of 53.5 cm of 130 kilograms will be seen from February 1 to April 28, 2019 at the exhibition organized in collaboration with the Office of the President of the Republic and the Prague Castle Administration.
"I would like to invite the general public to a unique exhibition in Prague Castle where, in addition to the second largest gold coin in the world, there will be several other valuable exhibits from the CNB archive," said Rusnok.
A 100-year Czech-Slovak crown exhibition at the Imperial Castle Stables in Prague offers visitors an overview of the development of the Czechoslovakian and Czech plaques and replicas of the royal kings of various countries. The original designs of Czech tickets by Alfonso Mucha, František Kysely or Max Svabinsky will also be exported, as well as examples of gold reserves of the central bank.
For numismatics, the CNB has prepared several special commemorative problems. For the first time in history, the CNB will issue a commemorative ticket entitled Czechoslovak Currency Building, commemorating the personality of the Prime Minister of Finance of Czechoslovakia, Alois Rašín. This bill, with a nominal value of one hundred crowns, will be issued on January 31, 2019. The 100th anniversary of the Czechoslovakian currency, the CNB will issue a gold coin with a nominal value of ten thousand Kroes, entitled Introduction of the Czechoslovakian currency.
Of commemorative and special currencies, the bidders of April 10, 2019 can expect a bimetallic coin with a nominal value of two thousand crowns. The currency will support the golden encrustation with a replica of the Czechoslovakian currency since 1922 in a silver corpus. Remember the emergence of the Czechoslovakian crown as a monetary unit of the new state.
For July, another important event will be one hundred years from the beginning of the issuance of the Czechoslovak money. For this anniversary, the CNB will issue a commemorative silver coin with a nominal value of 500 crowns.
For the broader public, the CNB created a special number of circulating currencies worth CZK 20 at the end of January. The reverse coins will be portrayed by the ministers of intergovernmental finance of Alois Rašín and Karel Englisch and the first governor of the then National Bank of Czechoslovakia, Vilém Pospisil. At the end of January it will publish the Stokoruna circulation with additional printing in the form of the 100-year logo of the Czech-Slovak crown.
At the end of this year, a representative book titled 100 years of the Czech-Slovak crown will be published by a team of authors directed by Vice President Vladimír Tomšík.
